Actually, you ARE at greater risk. Keeping your blood sugar under control definitely LOWERS that risk. The tighter the control, the better. (High blood sugar affects ALL the major organs of the body, but especially the kidneys and heart.)

I have enlarged heart, mitral valve and other problems. I don't know if the diabetes makes them worse or if the other problem affect the diabetes. Something I need to research.
